Hey! My name is Brent Mazza, and I am the Owner and Director of Tennis at HAT.  


Tennis is my true passion in life. I am originally from Southern California, but I went to college in Massachusetts at Boston University, where I earned my bachelor's degree in Business Administration. Prior to my time at HAT, I gained invaluable tennis industry experience working for the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island, the Boston Lobsters' World Team Tennis Franchise, and for the Champions Tour. 


My journey at HAT started in 2010 when I became our very first intern. Over the years, I progressed to assistant pro, head pro, and now director and owner. I am USPTA, PTR, USTA High Performance, and HAT Method Certified and have helped develop champions at every level. I have had the privilege to coach/consult with numerous Pro & ITF circuit players including:


  • Ao Gai - China (WTA #466)

  • Karen Barritza - Denmark (WTA #474)

  • Zoe Scandalis - USA (WTA #711)

  • Hao Zhang - China (ATP #1674)

  • Pengyu Zhang - China (ITF #614)

  • Marcos Salazar - Peru (ITF #927)


I have also had the honor of being selected by the USTA to coach several state, sectional, and national teams and events, including:


  • USTA Colorado

    • Team Colorado Developmental Squad Coach (2017-2020)

    • EDC Green Ball Coach (2017-2020)

  • USTA Intermountain

    • Team USA Sectional Camp Coach (2018)

    • 14's Intersectional Team Coach (2016)

    • 16's Zonal Team Coach (2014)

  • USTA National

    • 12's Spring Team Level 1 National Tournament Coach (2018, 2019, 2022, 2023)


Our philosophy at HAT is that tennis is a game and must, first and foremost, be FUN! Additionally, we try to never miss a "learning opportunity" with a student, whether it be technical, tactical, strategic, mental, emotional or golden-rule-of-life moment. It is often our job to wear multiple "HAT's" to help our students successfully navigate their tennis journey. 


My students call me "Mazza" and say that they enjoy my humor, but they know that I am also always honest and tell them the truth. They know that they can trust me. 


I am also an active 5.0 and Open tournament and league player, and I am always working on fine tuning my own game whenever possible (just like our students!).


Thanks for considering HAT!
